Last Night the #Somerville City Council unanimously passed a measure to extend voting to 16- & 17-year-olds. It's a recognition these students are engaged & active citizens, with the biggest possible stake in our collective future. #mapoli #TeenVoting 1/2— Joseph A. Curtatone (@JoeCurtatone) May 10, 2019
In the aftermath of a recent Land Use Committee meeting about Northland during which opponents booed, hissed and jeered fellow Newton residents who support the project (for a good example go to the 1:58 mark here).), Right Sized Newton’s Leon Schwartz, sent this message in an email to its supporters..
… I find this very difficult to write, because I really appreciate the passion and energy that everyone brought to the meeting last time and I understand the frustration that arises when you feel like you are not being heard or not being listened to, but: please let’s try to keep
From today’s Boston Globe:
At around 6:30 a.m. last Friday, members of Bike Newton placed a line of red Solo cups along the buffer zone separating the bike lane on Beacon Street from the cars driving by on the left.
By 7:30 a.m., many of those cups had been crushed by passing vehicles.
Sadly the scene at 7:30 am. There is no reason cups should have been knocked over. No vehicle should have been driving in the buffer. This is the most direct route for people biking into downtown. It needs protection. (Yes we have picked up all the cups and will recycle) pic.twitter.com/dhj97cad7g— Bike Newton 🚲 #mobilitylanes #2019Goals (@BikeNewton) April 26, 2019
